Save the Scares for Halloween: How to Protect from Forklift Accidents

Spooky season is officially in full swing, and for facility managers and safety personnel, the only thing scarier than ghosts and horror movies is on-site accidents and incidents. The workplace can quickly turn into a nightmare when forklift accidents or dangerous falls take place due to improper protection for equipment, machinery and assets.

Shop accidents like tip-overs, collisions with other forklifts and pedestrians can cause injuries and even fatalities that unfortunately happen too often.
